Nature has created barriers on our face that protect our eyes from sweat and dust. Well-groomed, clean and smooth [eyebrows], thick eyelashes create and maintain your spectacular image. What does castor oil for eyebrows give, is it useful to make masks for eyelashes? - We answer in detail in this article.
Castor oil or castor oil has been used in medicine and cosmetology for a very long time. It has a number of valuable properties, among which the most famous is the ability to have a mild laxative effect and maintain the balance of moisture and minerals when applied to the skin and hair. The combination of fatty acids in this natural composition is such that it easily penetrates through the epithelium layer, forming a thin film on the surface - temporarily sealing the skin pores.
It acts no less effectively on the hair, and since the eyebrows consist of thin hairs, castor oil is quite suitable and useful for growth and maintaining them in good condition. It does not contain toxic components and does not have the property of forming a bonding film. It is these oils that are valued in cosmetology - they help in [treatment of dandruff], seborrhea, are used as an adjuvant against hair loss.
Eyebrow mask with castor oil helps protect hairs from burnout and exhaustion. And they most often suffer from a number of adverse factors.

Wind, cold, high humidity - all this sooner or later destroys the hair sacs in the skin layer, and thin hairs begin to receive less nutrition.
The use of mascara for eyelashes and eyebrow dyes, albeit the most "pure" and gentle, also disrupts the balance of mineral metabolism, which is critical for hair. Frequent [eyebrow lamination] also gradually weans the hairs from self-feeding.
Eyelash loss can be associated with the use of mascara, and the eyebrows are affected by frequent thinning, plucking - removing the hair along with the follicle, you injure the skin.
All this together creates a strong load on the hair structure. Eyelashes can lose thickness and elasticity, fall out. Eyebrows lose their shine, become dull and patchy.
What will happen if you regularly and correctly smear your eyebrows with castor oil? The natural protective composition first envelops the strips. If the tips have begun to collapse, and the hair of the eyebrows loses strength, cuts, then the viscous oil will seal it. Along the entire length of the hair, a film is formed that retains moisture, and this helps to improve nutrition, increase elasticity - all this is important for strengthening the hair and maintaining the eyebrows in good shape.
Penetrating into the skin, the oil creates capsules around the hair follicles, maintaining the moisture balance and creating conditions for the penetration of minerals. Castor oil does not stick, and this is very important, it passes enough air.
